An all English Episode
This was our first live show abroad, all the way in… Gent, Belgium! Dipsaus Podcast was part of the festival “Women and Children First” in Vooruit
. We talked to Kopano Maroga
and the ladies Heleen Debeucklaere
and Emma-Lee Amponsah
of our sister vlog Black Speaks Back
. Kopano is a South African artist who had choice words to say about the South African elections and brought an amazing analysis about what decolonisation entails. Heleen and Emma-Lee started Black Speaks Back, a grass-root organisation reclaiming the diverse black narratives in Belgium. They told us more about the struggles in Belgium politically and socially.
Even Mariam got burnt a bit for not calling on the phone but preferring voicenotes and texting. We also talked about how we cannot speak of decolonisation without reparations, about colonial Europe, solidarity, White Walkers and there was lots of laughter and love…🖤
